New batch on CFD with OpenFOAM

Posted By: adarsh
Date:Tue, 6 Sep 2016, 9:33 a.m.

Course Overview

1) It is a balanced course for a beginner in CFD Field

2) The important prospect of this course, it allows the participant to built up their understanding in all the aspect to OpenFOAM as a general-purpose CFD Solver.

3) More than half of the time will be devoted on hands-on sessions

Physics Involved and Code development Aspect

1) Participants will solve some pre-defined cases as well as some of the newly developed cases like (physics involved):

Potential Flow, Simple Flow cases, Heat Transfer including natural convection Turbulence Flows (RANS and LES Modeling), Moving Frame of reference (MRF), Volume of Fluid (VOF), Dynamic Mesh Movements (sliding Mesh), Fluid Structure Interaction (FSI) and Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD)

2) Code Development aspect allow the students to walk through various pre-defined solvers like icoFoam, simpleFoam etc. It will also make through boundary conditions, utilities, and libraries.

3) Hands-on experience on platform to the participant for implementing various boundary conditions, incorporating solar transport in existing solvers and library development for new physics

This course is for you, if you are:

1) New to OpenFOAM

2) You have partial training in OpenFOAM

3) Want to develop proficiency in CFD / OpenFOAM

4) Want to simplify the use of OpenFOAM

5) PG Student, Research Scholar, starting career in CFD, R&D person either in industry / lab etc.

Prerequisite for the course

1) If you are opting for 'OpenFOAM / Fluent Softwares' only, then basic knowledge of CFD is must

2) This course is ideal for students having knowledge of Fluid Mechanics and Numerical Methods


The registration can be done by visiting and paying advance amount of Rs. 2000 /- (equivalent to $30) using PayPal / NEFT / IMPS / Cheque

The session seats available are 30 (both online and offline), will be selected on 'first come first serve' basis


The batch will start from 20 Sep 2016

Overall Course will be of 4 weeks (sessions 2-3 days a week) with overall duration 30 (theory) +30 (openfoam) +10 (fluent)
